Conan Exiles - Time To Mount Up

It is time to mount your steeds and ride across the plains of the Exiled Lands. One of the most sought-after features since Early Access launch is a reality: Mounts are now available in Conan Exiles!  You can engage in mounted combat and level up your pets and thralls, so they grow more powerful the more time you spend with them.
MOUNTS
Getting a mount works the same way as getting a regular pet. You will first have to find a foal, then bring it back to a Stable to raise it. Stables work the same as Animal Pens, but are for horses only.
Like Pets/Thralls, horses will grow stronger as they level up. Raise several different horses to find one with the stats you like.
Once your foal has grown into adult horse it can be placed in the world, like a regular Thrall/Pet. To ride into the sunset like your favorite cowboy you’ll need to equip your horse with a saddle, which can be unlocked at level 20.
Saddles will have different effects on your mount:
Cavalry Saddle – Fast acceleration, maximum speed, minimum defense, minimum maneuverability Scout Saddle – Long sprinting time, medium speed, low defense, maximum maneuverability Warhorse Saddle – Slow acceleration, minimum speed, high defense, low maneuverability No matter which saddle you choose, using a horse to get anywhere is significantly faster than running on foot.
MOUNTED COMBAT
With mounts we’re also introducing mounted combat. Shoot your enemies from afar with a bow and gallop away before they know what’s going on. Grab a sword, axe or mace and swing away from the comfort of your steed.  Equip a pike or a spear and attack your enemies by stabbing at them or equip a lance and tear through your opponent’s defenses with a mighty charge.
We think mounted combat is going to add a whole new level to Conan Exiles’ PvE and PvP gameplay and we’re excited to hear what you think.
PET/THRALL LEVELING
We’re also adding a leveling system for Pets and Thralls that can follow you. Leveling a Follower grants them increased stats and special bonus Perks.
When placing a Follower, they start at level 0 with a base set of Attributes. Faction and Tier determines growth rate and base Attributes, to make sure similar pets and thralls won’t be exactly the same. You can check your Follower’s Attributes by selecting “Info” from the radial menu.
Killing enemies when a Pet or Thrall follows you will grant them experience points. Crafting, exploration and other activities will not. Pets/thralls will only gain experience points when they are following you. Pets/Thralls will gain perks as they level up, which will further enhance their capability and grant bonuses to Attributes. The more specialized the Perk, the greater the bonus.

Camelot Unchained Newsletter #67

Slowed but not stopped. 
We are now entering the new 90 day development period.  So we expect to see giants in all their glory or at least an early version.  Also, they plan on starting up a persistent world on a 24/3 [weekends] server run by their overlord program.  Some things we may also see during this period is are the Spirit mages and dragons as they start to get flushed out.

Amazon's MMO New World Release Date.

Amazon has delayed its upcoming open-world MMO New World from August 25th to an undefined spring 2021 date.  It sounds like Amazon may be taking a more cautious approach to game development after early feedback from testers that the games weren’t quite what they hoped.
The New World team wants to add “more features and content before we share it with a wider audience,” including “plenty of middle and endgame experiences,” studio director Rich Lawrence said in a blog post that was also shared on Twitter. “We want our players to feel completely immersed in the game, and know that our studio stands for quality and lasting gameplay you can trust — and that means added time to get things where we want them before we fully release.”
Does New World require a subscription?
No, there will not be a subscription fee to play New World. You only need to make a one-time purchase—it's $40 for the standard edition—though there may be expansions or other things to spend money on in the future.
How to play in Beta
If you signed up for the beta on or before July 9th, already pre-ordered the game, or are a current alpha tester “in good standing,” you’ll be able to participate in a “first-hand look at New World” beginning on the game’s previously scheduled launch date, August 25th, according to an FAQ on the New World website.
If you get access to that first look, you’ll be able to play the game “in its current state” and for “a limited period of time,” according to Lawrence.

I am in no way going to lead anything, but I would dig very much somebody picking this up.  If not I can join another, but CotP is the OBVIOUS preference!

I'm curious to try Classic. I played vanilla WOW when it was released. So it could be fun again. I've played WOW on and off over the years. Last time I played was for about a month when the last big expansion came out. I did sub for 1 month tonight. WOW Classic servers allow you to create a character and get your name. But that's it for now.  I did this on Grobbulus (RPPVP) server.  Be aware that you can only be on either Horde or Alliance on the PVP servers for that account.  

Here's an article on how to. It's pretty simple and straightforward. The WOW classic client is around 3.5 GBs.  You access it under VERSION, next to ACCOUNT in your BN client.

EDIT: I'd probably be playing it casually. With maybe some longer sessions on the weekends.

FYI

I hoped on WOW tonight on the regular server. I see the Message of the Day that reads:

"Want to play Classic? We're rolling Alliance on Pagle."

Hi!  I created an Alliance character on the Pagle server named Nucleargnome.  Send me a tell or contact me on Battle.net (Battle.net id is arrjayzor#1681) if you want to group up.

I'm not sure if there will be enough interest to start a guild chapter in Classic WoW.  For now, we'll just have a good time leveling up.

Also, I created a pair of Horde toons (Pano and Lonestarr) on Herod.

cya!

Hey arrjayzor, I created a bunch of characters on Pagle (5 Alllance, 5 Horde) yesterday.  I also have a Gnome (Rogue) named Remontoire (only lvl 3, but he'll be an Enginner/Miner), and I'd be happy to group up. I sent you a friend request (from MadBlue#1405).. Now if I can only get through the queue today. :D

I broke down and re-subbed, to give classic a whirl... I am curious to see if the feel is what it was when I played beta forward. :)

I sent out a few friend requests, under my user name pirant#1300

Not sure the class I will play yet, but it / they will be on Pagle... :)

Cheers

Grim

With the number of people above, have you all been able to get together and form a guild?

I don't know. I've been mostly playing on the Pagle server (Classic). Have a Warlock (10) and Priest (15). I ended up joining a guild "IF Cats and Tea Club" that was recruiting in Elwynn Forset for the time being. Feel free to give me a hollar if you need help, or want to group up. I can make Linen Bags (6 slots). I mostly been playing late night during the work week. And sometimes during the day on Weekends. 

It's been fun seeing the different guild recruitment messages in chat. This one below is my favorite.

We have a CotP guild that Dryaad created...

Just a casual group atm, but who knows where the future will take it. :)

There is more info in the WoW Classic channel in our Discord.

Triona and I have quite a few things that came up recently that we need to take care of before we get back into WoW. I am projecting a few months to be safe. We are not quitting the guild or the game. I may be on periodically, but I cant guesstimate when we will be back to a regular gaming schedule at this time.
